Concern about airnb.com

Has anyone booked an apartment in Barcelona through 'airnb.com'? I have just booked one. I just want reassurance that it is professional and legit.

Renting a property in Catalonia has now got to be registered with the authorises.

This is about how the owner can apply for the licence.

spain-holiday.com/rentalbuzz/holiday-rental-…

This may not affect you but if the owner has got a licence then you should see the following details in the rental.

a) The property must be adequately furnished and equipped with functional appliances and utensils for immediate occupancy

b) contact numbers must be left in the property for the renter, to reach both the owner or a representative, and local emergency services: police, hospital (ambulance) and the town hall

c)The property should undergo regular maintenance and kept up-to-date.

d)An Official Complaint Form should be made available to the renter

e9The property must never be occupied by more people than the maximum stated in the occupancy certificate

The property cannot be let until a licence number has been issued. Do not accept that one is begin applied for as this breaks the law.
